September 15, 2016: Margaret’s experience with pain started with an accident when she was stepped on by a horse.
She didn’t suffer any broken bones, but the pain didn’t go away. It was thought that it was a bunion, so she had surgery. But the pain continued.
Eventually, Margaret was diagnosed with complex regional pain disorder. She began extensive physical therapy to simply help her get over her fear of putting weight on her foot, and then to begin walking. Today, her therapy is ongoing, but her progress is significant.
In this episode of Move Forward Radio, Margaret shares her journey with extreme pain, and details how physical therapy is helping her along the way.
